For Escher, the skin of the visible world could be cut, folded, shaped and rearranged in marvellous ways. A superb draughtsman, Escher set himself the challenge of portraying otherworldly transformations of space within the borders of a sheet of paper. The resulting images, combining fantasy with explorations of geometry, have become the favourite artworks of tens of thousands of people around the world.
Escher's works - from the great master prints to numerous drawings, accompanied by his eloquent words - are brilliantly arranged to form a cinematic journey of discovery. The destination is the magical world of the artist's mind, an uncharted realm lush with exotic conceptions and inventions.
